A preschool teacher is accused of molesting two 3-year-old girls at a Chinatown school.

Jian Feng, 25, is charged with four counts of predatory criminal sexual assault for the incidents at the Easter Seals National Teacher’s Academy at 2215 S. Federal St.

Feng told police he did it because “he was curious” and because “his brain made him do it,” Cook County prosecutors said.

Feng, of the 2200 block of South Princeton, was allegedly caught on video going into a bed as one of the girls took a nap, and stayed there for 10 minutes in two instances.

The girl outcried to her mother that he touched her, prosecutors said.

The other child, also 3, was fondled as Feng helped her in the bathroom, prosecutors said. A relative found blood in her underwear and the girl told her what happened, prosecutors said.

“You pose a great danger to all children,” Judge Adam Bourgeois Jr. said before denying Feng bond on Saturday.
